So, it seems that like every 6 months, I have to take my grill off to repaint it due to rocks and whatnot chipping the paint. I've tried using regular enamel with a coat of clear, plastic specific spray paint with a coat of clear and have even swapped the clear with some spray urethane (which sucked btw because it started to flake off after a few weeks!!). Its getting to the point that its kinda a pain in the rear to do this.

Anyone have any suggestions on maybe different painting methods and/or products to use that will last a while longer? Like maybe even ditching the paint for some vinyl? Thanks.

Have a body shop do it?
